The undergraduate students who deseattonrmd superhuman powers through their hard work and dedication. The graduate sutnedts and the postdoctoral fellows, my fellow Avengers, who taught me new techniques and always made sure I stayed on track. The professors, my Yodas and my Obi-Wan Kenobis, who brought their extipsree into making this work into what it is tdoay. The support staff, the finerds and family, people who lifted our spirits, and never let us give up on our aiubtmios endeavors. The best kind of sidekicks we could have asked for. It took a village to help me study metastasis. And believe me, without my village, I wouldn't be here.
